Before getting into the recipes, the book gives advice on a number of areas including why to cook for your children - ranging from the better taste, control in what goes in to reducing packaging. Good food shopping is next on the list. All fairly obvious, but it does set the book firmly in the River Cottage corner. Despite providing a normal index at the back, Nikki gives a very thorough and useful 6 page table, split up by vegetable/fruit, giving when it is in season, how to store it, what do with a glut and where the recipes are in the book. Glut ideas - for apples - range from pureeing to grating to use in cakes, coleslaw and burgers. This Raw Ingredients chapter ends with the things to avoid - E-numbers, processed foods and too much sugar/salt and the wrong sort of fat.
The next chapter is The First Year - the great food adventure begins. This chapter includes breastfeeding, formula feeding, milk (even what formula to choose),when to wean, weaning, allergenic food and reluctant eaters.
Nutrition - what exactly does your child need - follows next.Read more ›
lovely recipes, healthy, simple and lots of tips too
We have had some pretty good dishes, such as the carrot and lentil soup, mackerel with potatoes and onions, champ-cannon, the bolognese sauce and the venison stew (sans herb dumplings) which we ALL thought was delicious. Tonight I made Fish Pasta al forno as I discovered that I had to roast the beetroot for the beetroot coleslaw for 1-2 hours before getting started. The taste of the food seems to get a big thumbs up from us.
But where the book does fall down is that the last three dishes I have mentioned seem to take an absolute age to make. The Fish dish was made in so many different parts, using up loads of pots and pans in the process as well. The problem is that when you have a baby, you simply do not have the time to make these dishes - and I am a stay at home mother of only 1 child - which is probably the easiest out of all the permutations of working setups and family size. There are of course some very easy recipes in this book as well. But the only time I can make time to do these dishes is after the baby goes to bed - which means he gets the food for his lunch the next day.
I think the next book (if there is to be one?) should focus on FAST and nutritious.
